Ralph Michael’s Memorial Service, Route 100 closure and Community luncheon~ Margo’s Plymouth report

Reprinted with permission from The Vermont Standard


These cooler overnight temps have certainly made sleeping more comfortable lately.  A break in the rain has made it necessary to water the garden, but that is fine with me!  A cramp in my foot pulled me out of bed in the middle of the night and a strange squealing sound drew me to the dining room window.  I couldn’t see anything, but the branch of a tree was quavering and leaves were rapidly falling to the ground. I have no idea what was happening, but I surmise that some creature was in trouble….

The memorial service for Ralph Michael was held at the gravesite on Saturday and about 30 people were in attendance.  There were many words of appreciation for his life and accomplishments.  His daughter, Michelle, gave a message from the family since Judy was suffering with a back issue and Rudy, Jeremy and family were unable to attend due to Covid.  It is a bit concerning that Covid is circling around again, so that caution is needed.

I understand that the Mountain Times did quite an article about the issue of Rte 100 being closed for bridge work, supposedly at the end of the month, while 100A (the detour route) will also be under construction.  I have been unable to obtain the publication, but these projects are of concern to many local residents.  Hopefully more information will be forthcoming soon.

I am in a quandary about the community luncheon scheduled for Friday.  A couple of people have already indicated that they will not be coming due to Covid concerns. I was hoping that we might pull tables outside, but I am not sure if that is feasible.  For those who were planning to attend, please let me know what you think.  We had hoped to have more information about the road construction issue, too.

Please mark your calendar for the one day annual tag sale/craft fair at the Plymouth community center on Saturday, October 9. There will be a five dollar per person charge for setting up a table to sell your items.
